A neighbor posted this on her anti-chickens in the city rant on Nextdoor: "....And another thing we never had them here and in my opinion I don't want them here so if they want to raise them go somewhere else and raise them..." I replied that chickens were actually the norm in cities - probably until the '50's - but I'm wondering if anyone can give me more info about this.... I imagine the advent of the supermarket may have had something to do with it, but I really don't know. I still see old chicken coops in the back yards of older homes in the S.F. Bay Area, where I live.... Thanks!
